Carl Reiner and Newman Communications bring a Double Feature Publicity Tour

American Icon,  Mr. Carl Reiner comes to Newman for a book publicity campaign on two new titles, “Just Desserts” and “Tell Me Another Scary Story…..but not too scary”.

In Reiner’s “Just Desserts” successful romance novelist Nat Noland has just had his cage severely rattled. After receiving an email directly from God, Nat just can’t seem to get any work done on his new novel.  Follow Nat on his romps around New York City, as he tries to make sense of this divine intervention. With all the slapstick comedy and madcap hijinks that Reiner fans have loved for decades, JUST DESSERTS sparkles with a humor that only the enduring comedic mastermind himself could create.

Tell Me Another Scarey Story

Tell Me Another Scarey Story

The incomparable Carl Reiner’s first children’s book, Tell Me a Scary Story, was a hit when it appeared in 2003. Here at last is the sequel, TELL ME ANOTHER SCARY STORY…But Not Too Scary!

Kids love scary stories, particularly gross-out ones, and TELL ME ANOTHER SCARY STORY delivers even more of the same. Complete with a read-along CD filled with stuff children love—odd beams of light coming from nowhere, oodles of goopy goo, memorable characters, and mysteries for kids to solve……if they dare.

As the story becomes scarier, Reiner pauses to ask readers, “Shall we turn the page, or is it too scary?”  That’s for kids to decide!

Here’s a fun book with delicious thrills that children will ask for again and again.

Newman is doing a full book publicity campaign for Carl which includes radio, TV and print.

About Carl:

Carl Reiner is one of the few true Renaissance persons of 20th-century. Known for his work as creator, writer and producer of The Dick Van Dyke Show, the Emmy award-winning Reiner has touched three generations of American comedy.

In 1957, Reiner conquered another medium when he adapted one of his short stories into Enter Laughing, a semi-autobiographical novel focusing on a struggling actor’s desire to break into show business. In 1963 the book became a hit play.

After directing Enter Laughing in 1967, Reiner went on to do several critically acclaimed films such as The Comic (1969), and Where’s Poppa (1970). Reiner also directed the wildly successful George Burns vehicle Oh, God! (1977).  Reiner is also significant for his role as straight man in “The 2,000 Year Old Man” recordings, which he began with Mel Brooks in 1960.

Once again on the cutting edge, Reiner joined forces with Steve Martin as the “wild and crazy” comedian made the transition to film, with Reiner directing The Jerk (1979), The Man With Two Brains (1983), and All of Me (1984).

Most recently Carl has been seen in the Ocean’s Trilogy with George Clooney and Brad Pitt and he starred in the season finale of the TV show House.

Carl Reiner is an inductee of the Television Academy Hall of Fame, recipient of the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and a 2008 honoree of the Paley Center for Media.
